Domaine De La Ribiere
Location: South of France near Limoges
Website: Being Build
Description:A large water of some 10 hectares with swims on both sides. All the pegs are wide and spacious - some can comfortably accommodate 3 or 4 anglers. This former gravel pit has depths varying from 6 metres to 1.5 metres. If the ground conditions are good you can drive to most of the pegs and then return your car to the car park. If the ground conditions are wet you can drive to the lake edge & then wheel barrows are available to help transport your tackle to your chosen swim. Eric, the on-site bailiff will meet you in the reception area & walk you round the lake so you can choose your swim - his English is not great so be patient!.
Stock:The lake contains carp to over 50lbs - there has been extensive stocking of large carp in 2002. There are also around 20 cat fish present between 22 & 99lbs.
There are 6 studio-apartments which sleep up to 4 people and one which sleeps up to 6 people, just 150 metres from the lake. They include double beds, en-suite shower room, kitchen dining area and couch/settee. All have satellite TV (English speaking channels are BBC World, CNN & Euronews) and private patio with table, chairs and BBQ. This would ideally suit a family.
In the same block there are also 7 self-contained bedrooms with en-suite shower and satellite TV. Four rooms sleep 2 people with twin beds, the other 3 rooms are for 2-3 people with a double and one single bed. All these rooms have use of a large communal kitchen and dining area to prepare your own meals or snacks. You can also use the large shared patio which has BBQ's, tables etc.
Along with the accommodation you also get exclusive use of a heated swimming pool and sauna - carp fishing has never been more luxurious! There are deer and donkeys on site too. All in all a rare combination - an excellent fishing venue for the angler with luxury accommodation available on-site to keep the non-anglers happy too.
